The great news is, after 4 years my muscles coped with the journey, 278 miles each way - an answer to prayer, exercise and the support you have given ... Thank you.
I did take loads of photos (as you would expect from me), so they are uploading as I go to see Dad. I am working later, so will try and catch up with you later, and post some photos.
If you had any excitement, please aim me in that direction ... till later *hugs*
